helpful or a pointless exercise? cory booker, the hero mayor of newark, the guy who runs into a burning building to save lives, invites superstorm sandy victims into his home and rushes to aid a pedestrian hit by a car. heroism so out of the norm, it's been lampooned by booker himself and new jersey governor chris christie. >> gov, sit tight. i got this. >> booker. >> governor, stand back! i got this. i got this. >> booker! >> now booker says he will honor a challenge he made to one of his million plus twitter followers to live on food stamps for a week to see how the other half lives. although it's fair to ask, as mayor of newark, doesn't he already know? the s.n.a.p. challenge, as booker calls it, means eating on just $4.32 a day. he he says he's doing to, quote, raise awareness and understanding of food insecurity, reduce the stigma of s.n.a.p. participation, and amplify compassion for individuals and communities in need of assistance. he was told by a constituent that nutrition is not a responsibility of the government. he seems to be itching to prove her wrong. he could run against

of different perspectives tonight on guns in america. i want to bring in newark mayor, corey booker. and christiane amanpour. and psychologist dr. deepak chopra and tom ridge. from washington and former homeland security secretary. corey booker, let me start with you. it is heart-breaking. it's agonizing. you can't say anything to make it better. what i find fascinating about him is his incredible dignity. the way he was prepared to offer comfort and sympathy to the family of the man who had shot his child and he went on to talk about gun control and said that he didn't want wide-ranging gun control to come as a result of this, but he didn't understand why this shooter's mother would ever want to have the kind of assault weapon that was used in her home to defend herself. he raised a number of issues about that which we'll see more of tomorrow. but what do you say to other families in america that can't send them to school now, to movie theaters? there is almost nowhere left now that's sacred for americans to be safe because of gun violence. what is the answer? >> well, first of all
newark who has been a rising star in the political sphere for quite some time now cory booker has intimated he is looking to run for the senate race when senator frank lautenberg's term is up in 2013. i suppose it's not that big of a surprise, although some thought he might try to challenge chris christie in the gubernatorial race. >> yeah, there was some speculation that would be a powerful race there, but i think chris christie right now is pretty popular in new jersey, especially in the aftermath of his behavior following the superstorm sandy. i think cory booker has a huge future, and i think if he runs for that frank lautenberg seat from new jersey as the democratic nominee, he'll have a pretty good chance of winning. i don't know who the republican might be. that's not going to happen until 2014. so we still have some time. the gubernatorial race is next year. >> he has some big money behind him already and has had some for quite some time already. this is a guy who maybe, you know, if americans are starting to hear more about him because of his super hero, you know, busines
